and you're right, definitely no time to bottom fish....this is my BMW we're talking about here. Unfortunately, I think the real trick will be to sell the thing.
Sell the car, convert the wife and get two LF cameras!
Seriously, get rid of the car and buy something you will use and enjoy. Just having a cool wife will be a benefit greater than you can imagine.
Graeme, This is almost exactly the way my wife put it (the second part that is).

My 2 Cents is to get the best camera for your needs wherever it happens to be made. It gives me real pleasure to buy British, but I only do so when it is the best or equal best product.
Buying new or used for teh camera?

Ok, so here's the deal. I'm assuming your accountant is your wife. You shot her down on the piano funding, now she want you to get the camera.
My friend this will cost you well more than you know. once you have the camera, you loose any control you may have had over where discretionary dollars will be applied in the future.
Mind you, even is the accountant is not your wife, this still holds true.
All i can say is tread carefully.
You could get a brand new ULF camera with holders from our own Jim Chinn, a lens, & still have money for a few boxes of film.

Stop trying to get into my mind, There is nothing there!
Here is a thought. You can please the wife and still get a nice used outfit. SPlit the difference. Pay part of the piano, move the wife's car into the garage, get a decent, not brand spankin' new, camera and a lens or two. All of it can be done. You just have to stop thinking about those high end new cameras.

Thomas, I'm betting your wife doesn't browse on Apug, huh?
